In fact you can just pass down the end-level KVM_MAX_HUGEPAGE_LEVEL or
PGLEVEL_4K here to kvm_tdp_mmu_wrprot_slot and from there to
wrprot_gfn_range.

Generalyl using "|=" is the more common idiom in mmu.c.

Is it worth not calling handle_changed_spte? handle_changed_spte_dlog
obviously will never fire but duplicating the code is a bit ugly.

I guess this patch is the first one that really gives the "feeling" of
what the data structures look like. The main difference with the shadow
MMU is that you have the tdp_iter instead of the callback-based code of
slot_handle_level_range, but otherwise it's not hard to follow one if
you know the other. Reorganizing the code so that mmu.c is little more
than a wrapper around the two will help as well in this respect.
